Skinny-Punch Books for the Summer

July 23rd, 2010 by

A while back, I read Forget Me Not by Coleen Murtagh Paratore. It’s part of the Wedding Planner’s Daughter series, and this particular installment takes place over the summer — but this post actually isn’t to recommend Forget Me Not as a beach read for the season. Instead, I want to recommend some of the books that the main character of Forget Me Not likes.

Confused? No, you haven’t entered The Twilight Zone. You see, in Forget Me Not, Willa loves reading what she calls “skinny-punch books” — books that are short but pack an emotional punch. NOT books about diet beverages, as you might have first assumed. (HA HA! I slay myself…)

Here’s Willa’s list of skinny-punch winners:

  • Bronx Masquerade by Nikki Grimes
  • Edward’s Eyes by Patricia MacLachlan
  • Esperanza Rising by Pam Munoz Ryan
  • Green Angel by Alice Hoffman
  • The Hundred Dresses by Eleanor Estes
  • Locomotion by Jacqueline Woodson
  • Love that Dog by Sharon Creech
  • Missing May by Cynthia Rylant
  • True Believer by Virginia Euwer Wolff
  • The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman

And I also want to add some of my own skinny-punch faves:

  • Granny Torrelli Makes Soup by Sharon Creech
  • Secret Letters From 0 To 10 by Susie Morgenstern
  • The BFG by Roald Dahl
  • Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan
  • Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Cleary

Have you read any of these? Or do you have your own skinny-punch picks? Leave a comment and let me know!
